graphic design + science + full-time = dream job

I am happy to share that I have recently been offered (and accepted!) the position of graphic designer at the Franklin Institute! I have been freelancing there in-house for the past few months, and I am elated to be joining the design team full-time. Check out some of the things I've been working on after the jump:

So I will certainly be posting fun things that I'll be designing, like these logos I worked on - of a fictitious association of Carbon atoms for a global warming presentation for kids.

How fun of a project is that? I always loved science as a kid, and I'm so happy to have the opportunity to create designs that are intended to not only communicate, but to educate and inspire. My first official day is May 23rd, and I can't wait! :)

  1. That is awesome!

    We should talk- I didn't know you were a graphic design major. I'm going back to school in the fall for computer graphic design and I confess I don't know much about it. I just know I love computers, I love art, and I really love website design. If you have any tips or advice let me know. ^_^ I would love perspective from someone who has already done this.

  2. Congratulations Brigette!! that sounds so awesome!!!
